Suns’ Devin Booker Believes Team Doesn’t Deserve Break

As the NBA All-Star break approaches, Devin Booker believes that his team, the Phoenix Suns, don’t deserve a break.

The Suns are struggling yet again, and are in the midst of a 14-game losing streak, and while Booker will be defending his crown during the 3-Point Contest during All-Star weekend festivities, he believes the team instead needs to get to work.

“We don’t deserve an All-Star break,” Booker said, according to Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic.

“We need to work on our game as players. I know me, I’m going to be at All-Star weekend, but right after that, I’ve got to touch a basketball and still polish up on things. I hope that everybody has that same mindset.”

Booker knows that the Suns, who currently own the second-worst record in the league, have a lot of work to do.

“It’s just fighting that uphill battle,” Booker said. “When you’re fighting that uphill battle, any mistake can ruin it. Just do our work early so we don’t have to fight uphill all game.”
